performance in denver last week by introducing the country to the new mitt romney. the new mitt romney is not the candidate we've seen for the last couple of years. last week romney lied about his policies on taxes, education and health care. today the candidate's positions went under the knife during a speech at the military institute. romney laid out a complete reversal on his strategy for middle east peace. >> i'll recommit america to the goal of a democratic, prosperous state living side by side in peace and security with the jewish state of israel. >> the new mitt romney is committed to a two-state solution, but this is not what mitt romney told a group of donors in private. >> priceless tape. direct from romney's mouth, you hope for some stability and hope something will happen. listen to the new mitt romney today in his opinion on hope. >> i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east aligned with us. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. >> the new mitt romney didn't flinch when he made a false accusation. >> i'll champion free trade and
from new york, denver los angeles and washington. president obama and governor romney faced off tonight in the first of three debates before election day on november 6th. domestic policy was in focus during the 90-minute showdown at the university of denver. the platform gave govern romney an opportunity to reignite his campaign which has suffered some this summer. they sparred across a range of issues. >> there's a various done of small businesses across the country saying what's the effect of obamacare in your hiring plans. three quarters said it makes us less likely to hire people. i just don't know how the president could come into office, facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment and economic crises at the kitchen table, and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for obamacare instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. >> the irony is that we've seen this model work really well, in massachusetts. because govern romney did a good thing, working with democrats in the state to set up what is essentially the identical model, and as a consequence,
this great moment a clear win with this new romney. people haven't seen new ideas, smart energy. can they lock the campaign to it and can they now take advantage to really capitalize on the second look he's going to get. >> rose: was the romney you saw tonight the romney you knew, mike. >> yes. a little secret of the romney, i ran his campaign for governor back in 2002, and he won that state by performing really well in the debates. the go you saw tonight, smart, policy-focused, crisp. you look at him and think boy a guy who knows how to run something well. so i think the country in many ways got the first real look at that and then filtered away and now if the romney guys can keep that going for the month they're really back in the race. the next thing the media narrative will need a couple better polls for romney and my guess is they'll get them. they have a real opportunity to move forward. >> rose: john dickerson. >> on the poll of undecided voters right after the debate who watched, romney not only won two to one but on the question of who cares about you and regular people wh
." vo: why won't romney level with us about his tax plan, which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks? because according to experts, he'd have to raise taxes on the middle class - or increase the deficit to pay for it. if we can't trust him here... how could we ever trust him here? if we want to improve our schools... ...what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ...nothing transforms schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> in june of last year, bloomberg news polled americans on their views of various republican political figures across the country. they found that the single most unpopular republican in america at that time, last summer, was former alaska governor sarah palin. the second most unpopular republican was former house speaker newt gingrich. and rounding out the top three, the republican with the third worst net favorability rating in the entire country, was a back
threshold and convince people he can be commander-in- chief. >> a new poll shows mitt romney closed in on the president's lead following last week's debate. the new research poll gives mitt romney a four point edge. >> foreign policy will be the focus of the final presidential debate on october 22. the next face-off between the present and mitt romney is next week in hempstead, new york. >> the rain is staying away so far. we're surrounded by it but downtown baltimore remains dry. 54 degrees, 6 mile an hour wind coming out of the east and northeast. the rain will not be far away. the chances are pretty good that a shower will track through. this is headed northeast on -- it does not look like a rainout but the chance for showers will be there for least another couple of hours. in west virginia and parts of western maryland, some wet snow mixed in in the highest elevations. the first pitches after a p.m. this evening. the rain chances will be running at 50-50. that is improved. temperatures are cooler. will drop into the upper 40's to around 50. it does not look like it is a washout.
>> live and in ht, this is abc 7 news washington weekly. >> mitt romney is in florida. that is where the debate will be held. the moderator is a cbs anchor and the focus will be foreign policy. you can catch every minute of the debate right here on abc 7 starting tomorrow night at 9:00 p.m. the libya issue will be one of the key topics in the debate. tell us if you have learned anything new from the president and mitt romney about that. >> i do not think we will learn anything new in terms of intelligence. we will see them face off again. last time they went at it, mitt romney came up the loser. >> the one thing about this whole situation is, at least with libya, its sole -- still seems the president does not have a full answer when it comes to the timeline and exactly what took place there. do we expect any kind of clarification to bar? some people are saying he should address the nation. do we expect any more clarification on the timeline? >> there is a problem in the community with the information they are getting. it took 14 days between the attacks and when the pr

if it's true, he must need a new accountant. now, we know for sure it was not the real mitt romney because he seems to be doing just fine with his current accountant. so you see, the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romney's decisions and what he's been saying for the last year. and that's because he knows full well that we don't want what he's been selling for the last year. >> here's the point. mitt romney knows americans didn't want what is an unfair plans and that's why a decoy mitt showed up last night. but here's the thing. we're not going to let him get away with it and neither should you. head over to our facebook page where we're showing the details of the romney hypocrisy on issue after issue. he can't hide his true record. he can't attack health coverage and then get away with saying things like this. >> number one, pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. number two, young people are able to stay on their family plan. >> oh, really? is that so? well, here's what the real romney says on the campaign trail. >> i
. >>> well, the romney campaign could be waking up this morning to a brand new political he headache as yet another political candidate makes explosive comments over rain. it was during a u.s. senate debate in indiana last night. richard murdoch and his opponents were asked about abortion when murdoch said this -- >> i believe that life begins at conception. the only exception i have for -- to have an abortion is in case of the life of the mother. i just struggled with it for myself a long time. i came to realize, life is a gift from god and i think when life begins in that horrible situation of rain that it is something that god intended to happen. >> after the debate murdoch told the news conference he was only trying to explain his view that god creates life. >> are you trying to suggest that somehow i think god ordained or pro-ore daend rain. i don't believe that. that's a sick and twisted -- no, no, that's not close to what i said. >> this all matters to the romney team because the comments come just one day after the murdoch campaign began running a new ad featuring governor romney. >
' plan. last night, this new romney also smiled into the camera and said he just loves regulations. >> regulation is essential. you can't have a free market work if you don't have regulation. as a business person, i had to have -- i needed to know the regular places. i needed them there. you couldn't have people opening up banks in their garage and making loans. you have to have regulations so that you can have an economy work. every free economy has good relati regulation. >> every good economy has good regulation. great point. why don't you tell to this guy. >> if i'm the president of the united states, we're going to rein back the regulations. we're not going to expand regulation. >> burdensome regulations serve only to restrict freedom and imperil enterprise. >> you see, last night as i watched the debate, many people that i work with, many people that i know in and around the country, were worried about whether the president was on his game. i was being ensuggested when someone can tell me something for 18 months and then tell me in one night the complete opposite, and i'm not
the comments come just one day after the murdoch campaign began running a new ad featuring governor romney. >> there's so much at stake. i hope you'll join me in supporting richard murdoch for u.s. senate. >> late last night, the romney campaign issued a statement reading governor romney disagrees with richard mourdock's comments. dnc chair debbie wasserman schultz slammed the remarks as outrageous and demeaning. >>> governor romney has a slight lead over president obama in a new poll. romney is head of the president 49% to 48%. that was only after rounding off the decimal points. since the numbers are within the margin of error, the two candidates are in a virtual tie. and the time to press the flesh is getting short for the keanes as they try to lock in every single last vote before november 6th. nbc's tracie potts has details for us from washington. tracie, good morning. >> reporter: lynn, good morning. they're doing it by crisscrossing this country, hitting the battleground states. let's talk about governor romney. is he in nevada and iowa today. he's going to be in ohio tomorrow after
the new jersey governor, a top romney surroga surrogate, heeds praise on president obama. >> the president called me. i appreciate that call from the president. it was very proactive and i appreciate that type of leadership. the president is great. i spoke to him three times yesterday pep called me for the last time at midnight last night. asked me what i needed. i said if you could expedite the major declaration without the fema mumbo jumbo. i got a call from fema at 2 a.m. the president has been all over this and he deserves great credit. i was on the phone with him yesterday three times personally. he gave me his number at the white house. told me to call him. and he absolutely means it. the president has been outstanding in this. so the folks at fema, craig fugate and his folks have been excellent. >> the president deserves great credit. he's been outstanding. a republican praising a democrat. but the powerful fact is this wasn't about politics. this was genuine thanks to a president focused on taking care of americans. president obama has canceled all campaign events through tomorrow
obama admittinghis to abc news. >> well, governor romney had a good night. i had a bad night. it's not -- >> how bad? >> well, it's not the first time i've had a bad night, but i think what's important is that the fundamentals of what this race is about haven't changed. >> those are pretty direct admission and it came just hours after the president offered up this explanation. little bit different. for his performance last week. >> you know, the debate i think is fair to say i was just too polite. it's hard to sometimes keep on saying what you're saying isn't true. the good news is that's just the first one. >> the former director of speech for president clinton, ryan. you couldn't even restrain yourself from rolling your eyes there. >> you know, i think that actually it's good for president obama to seem humble and thoughtful and hey, i didn't have a great night. i personally don't think that was the key problem. i think that mitt romney was bet e prepared, but also, president obama has a tough time defending his record when he's confronted with someone who's nimble and more mod
policies, rather than to the new romney that came out more or less last week. >> on that note, a topic that did not come up at the prior debate, but will come up and the president wants to this come up because of the polls that have shown a plunge in support among women. diane sawyer asked about romney's recent remarks on the whole flip-flopping on abortion. here's his answer. >> i actually think his position when it comes to women's rights to control their own health care decisions, you know, what he has been saying is what he believes. he thinks that it is appropriate for politicians to injection themselves in those decisions. governor romney had made very clear that if a bill comes to his desk that overturns roe versus wade, that he will be fully supportive of that and said i will appoint justices that will overturn roe versus wade. >> he's also said things completely opposite. the question is, is this going to be a big issue at the debate? is this going to hurt mitt romney? >> i think this is a very tough issue for republicans partly because the position that's advanced by mitt rom
this debate. only 31% say it will be romney. new this is a poll president obama likely does not want to win because he essentially says mitt romney is the underdog going into the debate. >> kelly? >> i don't think i've seen a gap that huge in one of the polls. the national candidates are usually neck and neck, pretty close. >> reporter: the cnn poll out among likely voters show present obama at 50% and mitt romney at 47%. that's obviously, within the margin of error. given the wednesday debate and others, there's a lot of room for either side to make up some ground. >> okay. looks like we're having technical difficulty. let's head over to jamie costello. >> all right. tonight, it's very popular on abc2news.com. elizabeth loves to crochet. now she is turning it into a business. 2 -- $25,000 up for grabs. sherrie johnson sits down to learn more. >> reporter: 16-year-old elizabeth loves crocheting. she has turned it into a business, an opportunity taking her to new york. >> i feel proud of myself because most people, most young kids think that crocheting is for older people. >> reporter: eliza
